Asian Journal of Case Reports in Medicine and Health https://journalajcrmh.com/index.php/AJCRMH <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Asian Journal of Case Reports in Medicine and Health</strong> aims to publish case reports in the areas of medicine and health research. By not excluding papers based on novelty, this journal facilitates the research and wishes to publish papers as long as they are technically correct and scientifically motivated. The journal also encourages the submission of useful reports of negative results. This is a quality controlled, OPEN peer-reviewed, open-access INTERNATIONAL journal.</p> en-US contact@journalajcrmh.com (Asian Journal of Case Reports in Medicine and Health) contact@journalajcrmh.com (Asian Journal of Case Reports in Medicine and Health) Sat, 30 Jul 2022 05:54:55 +0000 OJS 3.1.1.4 http://blogs.law.harvard.edu/tech/rss 60 Aseptic Meningitis with Acute Urinary Retention https://journalajcrmh.com/index.php/AJCRMH/article/view/30220 <p><strong>Aim:</strong> The clinical importance of acute urinary retention in aseptic meningitis.</p> <p><strong>Case Presentation:</strong> A 19-year-old male presented to us with signs and symptoms suggestive of meningitis. He later developed urinary retention. MRI of the brain with contrast was normal. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) analysis was consistent with aseptic meningitis. However, the meningoencephalitis panel was reported as negative. Urinary retention in the context of meningitis is known as Meningitis retention syndrome (MRS). MRS is a rare but important complication of meningitis. Early treatment with antiviral therapy resulted in a favorable outcome for our patient.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion:</strong>&nbsp;&nbsp; MRS is a rare self-limiting unique neuro-urological condition. The awareness of MRS and its clinical course is important for both neurologists and urologists in preventing unnecessary investigation and treatment, thereby reducing patients' anxiety.</p> Nikhil Teja Kambhampati, Renoy Henry, Akash Thomas Oommen ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://journalajcrmh.com/index.php/AJCRMH/article/view/30220 Wed, 10 Aug 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Case Report: Hepatitis-associated Severe Aplastic Anemia of Unknown Etiology https://journalajcrmh.com/index.php/AJCRMH/article/view/30219 <p>Aplastic anemia (AA) is a life-threatening, autoimmune-mediated condition that targets bone marrow precursors leading to pancytopenia. Hepatitis-associated aplastic anemia (HAAA) is one of the rarest entities where the recovery of acute hepatitis is complicated by aplastic anemia.&nbsp; Hepatitis viruses (A-E, G), non-hepatitis viruses (cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus, HIV, Parvovirus B19, and echoviruses,) and drugs/toxins have been recognized as etiological agents. We present a case of a 29-year-old Asian male presenting with progressive jaundice, diagnosed to have acute cholestatic hepatitis, subsequently leading to severe aplastic anemia without an identified inciting agent.</p> Muditha Jayaweera, Wasantha Kodikaraarachchi, Himal Kalambarachchi ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://journalajcrmh.com/index.php/AJCRMH/article/view/30219 Sat, 30 Jul 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Bilateral Thrombophilia Discovered in a Young Child Misdiagnosed Initially with Osteoarthritis https://journalajcrmh.com/index.php/AJCRMH/article/view/30221 <p><strong>Introduction:</strong> The occurrence of venous thrombosis in children is rare, often idiopathic and rarely a known etiology can be found, with sometimes a delay diagnostic in most cases.</p> <p><strong>Method:</strong>&nbsp; We report a case illustrating the difficulties of diagnosing phlebitis and a fairly rare etiology in an 11-year-old boy: the diagnosis of venous thrombosis on thrombophilia was made 12 days after the onset of pain in both lower limbs after an initial diagnosis of osteoarthritis or acute synovitis of the hip.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion: </strong>The diagnosis of thrombo-phlebitis should be considered in the presence of any persistent unexplained pain in a limb in children. Early diagnosis and effective anticoagulation are essential for the prevention of post-phlebitic syndrome.</p> P. M. Mulendelé, M. Njie, B. E. Ovaga, M. Haboub, A. Arous, Med G. Benouna, A.

Of these, meningiomas occur in 27.9% of patients, of which 20% among men and 33.2% among women. According to various authors, brain tumors develop annually in 2-25 per 100,000 population. The connection between traumatic brain injury and the development of shell-vascular tumors has been proven. The dependence of the frequency of occurrence of brain tumors on age was revealed. So, up to the age of 7, brain tumors are more common than from 7 to 14 years, and from the age of 14, the frequency of tumors increases again, reaching a maximum by the age of 50, after which it decreases again. In the course of the study, we studied the clinical features of the course of parasagittal meningiomas.</p> Ravshanov Davron Mavlonovich ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://journalajcrmh.com/index.php/AJCRMH/article/view/30222 Sat, 13 Aug 2022 00:00:00 +0000
